Review & Giveaway! Very Twisted Things by Ilsa Madden-Mills

Standalone New Adult

Briarcrest Academy #3 (all novels are standalones)

Author: Ilsa Madden-Mills

Release Date: March 1

A sassy violinist who lives next door…
The rock star who spies on her...
And the one night she bares it all.
Life will never be the same in Tinseltown.


Vital Rejects front guy Sebastian Tate never imagined his YouTube music video would go viral, sky-rocketing him to acting success in Hollywood. Okay, maybe he did. After all, he’s a cocky dude who knows he’s hot-as-hell, and it was only a matter of time before his stars aligned.

But life in Tinseltown is never what it seems.

After being cheated on, his only rule to falling in love is simple: Keep Calm and Don’t Do It. Spying on his mysterious new neighbor with binoculars seems innocent enough, but quickly escalates into an erotic game between two very unlikely people.

Twenty-year-old Violet St. Lyons is a world-renowned violinist who's lost her mojo on stage. She hides away in a Hollywood mansion, trying to find her way through her twisted past in order to make her future.

He’s the life of the party with girls chasing him down for his autograph. She’s the introvert with a potty mouth who doesn’t even know who he is.

When they meet, stars collide, sparks fly, and clothes come off. Yet, giving his heart to a girl isn’t Sebastian’s plan; falling for a guy who craves attention isn’t Violet’s.

Welcome to Briarcrest Academy—Hollywood style—where sometimes the best things in life are VERY TWISTED THINGS.


Ilsa Madden-Mills has brought us such a beautiful story again. Very Twisted Things is the third book in the Briarcrest Academy series and it was just as great a its predecessors.

Very Twisted Things follows the youngest Tate, Sebastian, though he's little no more. Sebastian is a man, a famous Hollywood singer in one of the most popular bands in the country, The Vital Rejects. Sebastian sees his neighbor through his binoculars on his balcony and even after the first time becomes completely enraptured.

Violet St. Lyons is famous in her own right, but not in any way anyone would ever want to be famous. Violet has become a recluse and secretive, hiding from the negative light that seems to follow her. Until Sebastian. Sebastian burns a hole straight through her damn sky, blazing like the comet he is.

Violet and Sebastian had such a combustible chemistry. It was palpable through the pages of this awesome book. When they were together it was like the spark that you knew burned between them ignited and burst into flames. Ilsa Madden-Mills did such a great job describing the feels and emotions between our two main characters. Sebastian was fabulous, he was handsomely witty and charming with just enough bad boy to make his allure strong as hell. I loved the vibe Violet set out as well. Though she lived in her shelf, when she broke out of it, you could see the spirit she had lurking just below the surface!

The Briarcrest Academy books have long been a favorite of mine and Ilsa Madden-Mills does such a fabulous job with writing them. Her words seem to flow and transition between characters intricately. This book was no different in the awesomeness of it as the other books before it. I personally can't wait for book four, Spider's book because the glimpses we get of him in Very Twisted Things makes me know I am going to love him just as much as the amazing Tate boys. Gotta love them.

5 Stars for Very Twisted Things!
